    "Die hard" has nothing to do with it. I'm a hardcore Trek fan, have been since I was 4 (I'm 33 now), and I gave it an "A+."

    I wish they would die hard, yes.

    JOKE!!!!! Seriously I see those names and a lot of them had already failed this movie before it came out.

    Yep. I was going to mention the same thing. Many of them were predicting doom before the second trailer had came out. Some have probably not even seen the movie.

    I need to unglue my brain from this forum. I seem to have gone insane hitting refresh and posting here. I'm in my Darkness bubble.

    Yeah, I've spent several hundred posts here over the last few days. I may need to go do something else, too.



    So, you doing anything later? :D

    I see it more as screaming at a newborn baby because it ended up being a boy and not the girl you (general you) wanted.

    Was that Praxis or are people just assuming it was? I saw the film a second time and heard no mention of it.

    Well, that's one way to look at it.

    I wonder if we could come up with an equally extreme metaphor for each voting block? ;)

    Are B- voters being callously indifferent to that same newborn child? :vulcan:

    If I spend a few minutes, I could do that. Unfortunately, I'm lazy, so I'll just say grades "A+" to "C+" are satisfied, happy parents. The "C-" to "D-" are parents who are disappointed, but want to love their new baby, though there are many hurdles for them. The "F" parents have been screaming into the birth canal since inception.

    You are a satisfied, happy parent. You may not be all gung-ho about some things, like that the baby's features do not match your own in any way, and that there's a man outside waving to the baby and your wife is waving back, but you are just glad to see it healthy.

    Nope, wasn't just you. I heard it too. Urban channels Kelley so well, it's frightening.

    Why, was it running away?

    :D

    It's okay to feel disappointed. You can overcome these hurdles with your newborn baby. All it takes is time and good will.

    Inception was stupid (lazy, character-less Fight Club).

    Now many C- to D- parents would say that they grade hard because they only want the best from their baby and they want to give their baby something to strive for (improvement). They will tell you that handing out easy accolades based on sentiment rather than merit is foolish and will result in a generation of babies who think the world revolves around them.

    I feel sorry for their babies. I am grabbing Into Darkness and running away with it, they do not deserve it!!

    Wow, what a difference a few letters make, eh? Maybe I should type more carefully going forward. :lol:

    I think we need to open an orphanage for the C- to D- Into Darkness babies. I don't think we can get to the "F" babies. There's barbed wire, and guard towers, around the compound. :(
